Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
The majority of these (I've ordered many) work just fine.
Data and power both function properly.
Exceedingly cheap!
Cons:
The occasional one will require a little DIY to function, as well as a few of them fall apart quite easily. However, they are fairly reliable on average.
Using several in a series quickly degrades signal strength.
Are usually a little loose fitting
Other:
Best value for performance I've found so far, and they're visually appealing. They sell them here locally for $8 each.
Bottomline:
For the price, it can't hurt to try.
